The seller of the 1978 Fiber Stream
now wants to back out of the sale. This after we had a verbal agreement over the phone & email, and I have spent money on modifications to my tow vehicle, not to mention all the time & energy spent on research for this particular trailer & trailers of this specific type. He delayed our meet one week already because he was having a systems check done.
I am just sick to my stomach.
All this at 11pm the day before I was to go up to redding to take delivery!
He states that the expense of the bearings being repacked & the wiring not being in working order makes him now want to sell it to someone locally, "as is". Previously, he offered to pull it to redding to meet me & do the deal there.
I have very limited budget for up front price & wanted to get a fixer in my (low!) price range that I could work on as I had the funds & could put lots of time into, as opposed to money.
I had set aside money to have an rv friend do the rewiring as soon as I got it down as far as Sacramento area. I also figured the tires
would need to be replaced fairly soon. None of the other items on the systems check he had done (for$170) were big surprises; ie. the frame IS in good shape, the oven doesn't work, the kitchen faucet has a small leak.
It does not seem very likely that another FGRV w a shower/bathroom will come along in my price range & local area very soon.....
The seller says he is open to solutions & apologized ......
What alternatives do you think would be fair/equitable/acceptable?
Still stunned & reeling from the shock....
